LibrarySearch offers a streamlined interface for finding books and other media that combines the collections of UO Libraries and Summit libraries.
Students working on source pulls for law journals can request books from the following sources:
The John E. Jaqua Law Library is the preferred library for law journal check outs. In addition, you can check out books from the UO Knight Library and the other UO branch libraries: Design Library, Mathematics Library, Portland Library and Learning Commons, Price Science Commons & Research Library, and the Rippey Library (Oregon Institute of Marine Biology in Charleston).
First, locate the resource in the library catalog. If you need additional information on searching the catalog, see the guide LibrarySearch Help.
Once you have located the item in the catalog, you can retrieve the book from the specified library. You can also request for the item(s) to be sent to the law library. Please keep in mind, the person who requests the item must be the person who picks up the item from the law library. All items must be checked out to the person making the request and they will be responsible for renewing the item and any penalties or late fees that may occur.
Summit is a consortium of libraries throughout the Pacific Northwest that allows students to request books from other member libraries. It includes the law libraries at the University of Washington, Seattle University, Lewis & Clark College, and Willamette University. Items can be searched using the same library catalog. If available from a Summit library, there will be a link to Place Summit Request. Summit materials arrive within 5 days, generally have a six week loan (though some are six days), and are not renewable. If the check out period runs and you still need the book, return the book (so you do not accrue fines or fees), and re-request it.
If a book, book chapter, or journal article is not held by a UO or Summit library, you can request the item using ILL. First, search WorldCat and locate the item. You can select Request Item which will prompt you to log in with your Username and UO ID. Items generally arrive within two weeks and checkout periods vary.
Journal editors are personally responsible for all library items that are checked out. Please use the links below to renew items and track your loans and requests.

Before submitting an InterLibrary Loan request, an account must be made. This can be found on the UO Libraries website by clicking the "InterLibrary Loan" link and following the login prompts, or first time users can click here.
Please allow about 2 weeks for delivery of books and physical materials. An e-mail will be sent when print materials are ready for pick-up.
Most journal articles arrive in 24-48 hours and will be sent electronically.
